Skullcandy, known for their wide variety of stylish headphones are releasing a few new pairs this year. They’re focusing on one right now. Headphones are bigger than ever. There is something for everyone. I was able to have a quick hands on with the new Skullcandy Navigator on ear headphones.
With a price of $99.99, these headphones are sweet. The little brother to the Skullcandy Roc NationAviators, these headphones are light and compact. They fit comfortably and you could barely feel their weight. They have a similar retro look to the aviators and are available in black, blue, and white. They felt sturdy enough. The headband can take a hit; as it stretches quite a bit. They have a detachable “made for Apple” cord.
For such small ear pieces; they can block out a lot of noise. They’re decent headphones so far. Check out the press release for more details.
